Yesterday the youngest of the Sea Hawk crew tried their hands at Spanish mackerel fishing. We trolled small spoons and spinners along with inline trolling weights and planners at speeds of around 5mph.The bites were predominantly on silver/ pink . Pretty neat opportunity for some species that we don't target every day.
This week we concentrated on seaside flounder fishing. The bite has been pretty hot with the best action occurring on the last half of the flood tide. The fish held near the inlet and were in 10-25 feet of water. Silversides were the best bait and pink was the hot color. The water had been really clear which has helped fishing a lot.
This HOT week comes to a close and hopefully the weather will moderates so we can get back to enjoying the waters around the eastern shore. The offshore bite has been okay with yellowfin, mahi, and king mackerel being taken on both the troll and the chunk. The blackfish bank reef has supported great trigger/ spade action on clam and improving flounder action on the cars. The inshore flounder bite improved today with most action occurring during the last of the flood and first of the ebb. The Chesapeake still is producing cobia to the south and great bloodworm gobbling spot and kingfish action in the Pocomoke and Tangier sounds.
